Occupy the Auction where Well Fargo
Plans to Sell the Del Rio’s Home.

Save the Del Rio Family Home, Stop the Foreclosure Auction:
Thursday, March 1, 1:45pm-3:00 PM
SF City Hall Steps, 400 VAN NESS AVE
(On the opposite side of City Hall from Civic Center Plaza.)

Join Occupy Bernal at City Hall to protest the foreclosure auction of the home of the Alberto del Rio family in the Bernal neighborhood. Anyone in support of the Occupy movement is requested to attend this protest to demand Wells Fargo stop predatory evictions and foreclosures of San Francisco residents. Location: City Hall steps on VAN NESS side of City Hall (On the opposite side of City Hall from side facing Civic Center Plaza)

Occupy Bernal has identified 84 homes in foreclosure proceedings in Bernal Heights alone. Of these, Wells Fargo owns the mortgage in at least 13 of these cases. Of the homes we have visited, a disproportionate number of the owners are African-American or Latino, reflecting the racist practices of the banks who are preying on communities.

While foreclosures in Bernal Heights represent just the tip of the iceberg in a city that has seen as many as 12,000 foreclosures in the past three years, Occupy Bernal is hopeful that a victory in our neighborhood could spark victories elsewhere in San Francisco.

Read statement of Occupy groups, Causa Justa, and ACCE on fight against Wells Fargo to save neighborhood homes.
